Mediterranean Paleo Chicken Salad –
I love Paleo chicken salad because it is free of rancid oils that are used in traditional recipes that have soybean or canola oil mayonnaise.
Mediterranean Paleo Chicken Salad
1 roasted chicken (organic, soy-free and pastured is best)
(Try my easy roasted chicken recipe) (or Rotisserie will work)
1/2 cup of olive oil mayo, recipe below
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 head of romaine or butter lettuce
1 red onion, diced
1 lemon, juiced
Sea salt and pepper as desired
(always choose organic produce when possible)
Shred the chicken with your hands or chop up and put it in a big bowl.
Add the homemade mayo (below), red onion, cilantro, lemon, sea salt and pepper.
Mix well and serve on a lettuce boat.
Olive Oil Mayo:
4-5 egg yolks, at room temperature (soy-free organic is best)
1 Tbsp of lemon juice
Sea salt and pepper
Beat the eggs in the food processor for a few seconds.
Slowly add the olive oil in a continuous drizzle.
Keep the food processor going until a nice emulsion forms.
You may not need all of the olive oil.
Add the lemon juice and beat a little more.
This will keep for about a week.
